My friend, AL, said that we appear to be headed to Miter Town. Here is evidence of the early stages of the trip, per Cara's request.
While I am becoming more adventurous with color in my middle age, I am still somewhat reserved, and my decision as to how to design my first square (four miters) was limited by the yarn I had on hand: four balls of Mission Falls 1824 Wool, two in Crocus and two in Aster. My original plan was to accumulate more 1824 Wool and make a baby blanket or throw. However, I am now considering making a simple pillow out of my first square, and following the leader. If all goes as planned, I will be having a mother's day off tomorrow, and I am headed on a 90 mile trek to the yarn store, where my intention is to begin accumulating Cotton Classic for miters. Cara's post yesterday has inspired me to be more adventurous.
Technical note: I am using size 8 needles, but I probably could have used size 9s.
Update 6/29/07: The trip to Miter Town ended prematurely. It initally stalled when I had to frog miter number three not once but twice. This prompted me to put the project aside, which gave me some time to think about it, and I concluded that I do not have the time, financial resources, or wherewithal to continue this project in my current phase of life. It is a blessing to realize one's limitations and to act accordingly.
